2010 Indianapolis Marathon Training Recap ...

This time tomorrow I will be toeing the line at the 2010 Indianapolis Marathon. Getting to this point was a journey in and of itself, one that started back on June 7th. Since then ...

I have run a total of 758.99 miles
(9.99 miles more than what my schedule called for),

at an average pace of 10:05 mile,
for a total of approximately 127 hours and 40 minutes,

which is 5 day, 8 hours and 40 minutes of running,
just to get one of these ...


A FINISHED TRAINING PLAN.

19 weeks of training. 5 runs per week. 3 new PRs.
0 injuries. 1000s of laughs.

26.2 - YOU ARE MINE.
